Walking by faith

Walking by faith
2 Corinthians 5:7 (NKJV)

For we walk by faith, not by sight.

Walking by faith

Imagine you have gone through a difficult time in your life and you’re fearful of what the future may hold. To encourage you a friend says, “You can do it, one day at a time. Remember, just walk by religion not by sight.” Walk by religion? To a Biblically literate Christian, the very sound of that phrase is off putting to say the least.

You probably know what Paul really said in 2 Corinthians 5:7 “we walk by faith, not by sight.” But even the idea of walking by faith seems contrary to common sense. If we walked by religion, we would at least have a tangible structure, things that are seen, to pin our hopes on. Buildings, Traditions, schedules, liturgies, ministers, and the like. If we walk by faith, we only have the promises of god. But we also have “the evidence of things not seen”.

By Faith We Understand. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 (NKJV) We not only have God’s promises but we also have the evidence of thousands of years of history that He has kept His promises to those who trust Him. And He will keep His promises for you.

Walking by faith

If you are facing an uncertain future, and we all are! remember to walk by faith, faith in the god who promises He “will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5
